Until last Fall I had only been to a couple of estate sales. Then one day while driving to my hairdressers I spotted a sign that said, “Estate Sale”. My car quickly did a 360 and I headed back up the hill to where the arrow pointed.
As I was paying for the goods I noticed a notepad that said, “Sign up to get e-mails for our Estate Sale notifications. It was like offering candy to a kid!
Ever since then whenever I get an e-mail, which is usually two days previous to the sale; I STOP and figure out a way that I can go. I DROP any previous plans I might have had. And yes, I grab a ROLL of dough and head out. Actually now days dough comes in the form of plastic. lol!
These are my latest estate sale finds:
A wonderful vintage scale with great patina.
I love the color of this lantern, and the red glass is the icing on the cake.
It found a home out on the deck amongst some of my vintage planters.
This old fertilizer spreader holds red and purple petunias.
This tray from an old tool box is a great home for my Hens and Chicks. Love the red color!
There were two of these chippy yellow chairs hanging from a beam in the upstairs family room. One of them was broken so I only bought one. I wasn’t sure what I would do with it, but too cute to pass up.
Perfect for holding our Olson oil can on the front porch.
I found a few old dishes. Two red glasses for $3, pretty floral platter for $2, and Jadite measuring cups for $5. The two little mini red goblets I picked up at D.I. for $.75 ea. on the way home. Does anyone know what these minis were used for?
Seeing an estate sale sign definitely is like yelling ‘FIRE’!
There I go, Stop, Drop, and Rolling again!
